*compile-file-environment*

Use of this variable is deprecated. Use sys:*compilation-unit-environment* instead. This variable does not have a value (boundp applied to it returns nil) but it is defined as a symbol-macro so any reference to it in code (except by symbol name) is automatically transformed into a reference to sys:*compilation-unit-environment*. (Thus (symbol-value 'sys:*compile-file-environment*) signals an error but just evaluating sys:*compile-file-environment* returns the value of sys:*compilation-unit-environment*.) Users are advised to change their references to sys:*compile-file-environment* to references to sys:*compilation-unit-environment*.

Holds the current compile-file environment. It should only ever be set to either nil or to an environment created by sys:make-compile-file-environment.

This environment has a lexical part and a global part; the lexical part is managed by augment-environment and the *-information functions, and the global part is managed by sys:ce-putprop and sys:ce-get. Whenever sys:*compile-file-environment* is set to a compile-file-environment, sys:ce-putprop will store to properties within this environment, rather than in some global manner, for example using (setf get). Also, sys:ce-get will consult this environment and if succesful will return the property stored therein, before then trying to get the property globally.

See environments.htm for more information on environments.
